This webinar offers an overall view of SOX for SMBs and strategies and approaches to help SMBs meet compliance to SOX and provide a basis for future improvements in governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC).

Description

Small and Medium-sized (SMB) companies face a December 2007 deadline to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act.

Despite extensions by the SEC and attempts at simplifying compliance guidelines for SMBS, the SEC has finally concluded that SMBs will not be exempt from meeting SOX’s Section 404 compliance requirements that is the most burdensome section. SMBs now face a major challenge because they lack the level of resources that their large counterparts had to achieve compliance and have limited time left for compliance. The waiting time for relief is over. SMBs need to address the compliance without further delay.
